. colorado at 8%. and we've got nevada 11.8%, that's one of the outliers. >> he has to go with vision and energy about what he can do in the future. and i think that's been lacking in the campaign. all the way back to the democratic convention and the speech which was disappointing, the first debate made him really think about what sort of president he would be for the next four years, never mind the last four. i think he's struggling to put that vision out there and bring that energy and drive that was so important in 2008. >> a criticism about romney is that he hasn't really put out their plans. >> and you think that's just american politics. you have to put out broad idea and concepts. but he's a businessman. he has a good track record of success in business. he has a vice president who is very interested and focused on these issues around how you can get american debt down and run the economy more efficiently. and i think that might make a difference on the day. >> is obama loses some of the races that were very excited about the prospects of having a black or mixed race president

the president of the united states is leading in swing states like ohio, new hampshire, colorado, iowa, nevada, wisconsin, all those are critical. mitt romney's only leading in two of the swing states, we're talking about florida with 29 electoral votes, and north carolina with 15. you add those together to the base states that mitt romney has. that only makes 235 electoral votes. president obama with 303. that doesn't mean mitt romney cannot win. he's very close in some other states. in colorado, for example, in new hampshire, he -- but he's going to have to make up a lot of ground in a lot of places to get there and the last swing state polls we showed showed six. point lead in ohio. two-point lead for the president in florida. one-point lead in virginia. big hill for mitt romney to claim clitomorrow night. >>> let's go to the finance.yahoo.com poll. the aftermath from sandy. do you think the pace of the recovery will help or hurt either candidate? go to vote at finance.yahoo.com. josh, do you think at this point the voters especially in our north carolina of the woods will use this storm as

a lead. i'm talking about iowa, colorado, new hampshire, ohio, nevada, all states where president obama's doing very well. at least as competitive with romney. if mitt romney wins the states in his base, plus the two where he's leading, he only gets to 235 electoral votes, he needs many more to get elected. president obama would have many more, 303. so what mitt romney's got to do is figure a way to take some of those states away from the president. virginia, florida, ohio, colorado, iowa. that's where the election's going to be decided. mitt romney easily got a hill to climb the last 24 hours but nobody can say he can't do it. >> very good, thanks john, we appreciate it. on the eve of the election it's still the economy. that's still issue number one. which candidate offers a stronger pro-growth plan for the economy? let's bring in robert rice, former labor secretary and cnbc contributor, author of "beyond outrage." and stove moore, author of "return to prosperity." i want to make it short and sweet and simple. robert rice, who has the better economic growth program? >> barack obama. >

ohio, wisconsin, nevada, that mitt romney cannot get to 270 electoral votes without taking a very, very unlikely state away. so this is a very important place, just as ohio is important to president obama, and the closing argument that mitt romney is making is the one that has been his go-to for the entire year, which is look at the record, look at what barack obama said he was going to do, look at what he's done while the president is trying to make a recovery case, we're on the right track, the mitt romney argument is we haven't gotten where we need to go and he's going to be making that all weekend. >> people on the floor trying to look at the effect of the storm and the recovery on tuesday. is it possible that because in the northeast states that are normally blue, have lower turnout, the president actually does win on the electoral vote but the governor wins on the popular vote? >> reporter: that is possible. it's very -- you have to say it's very unlikely by looking at history at how few times that's happened. but we have an extremely close popular vote race to judge by the nation
